Ok, I can’t control myself any more.
Today, we’re officially announcing voice chat in PBwiki. This means that you can now talk to anyone viewing your wiki page. It takes about 15 seconds to set up on your PBwiki — and it’s free.
The details: We teamed with YackPack to embed their WalkieTalkie Widget that lets you chat on any PBwiki page. To get it, just edit any PBwiki page, click Insert Plugin >> Chat >> YackPack voice chat.
Here’s a video of how voice chat works in PBwiki
(To use this video on your site, just visit http://blip.tv/file/196824.)
Imagine using voice chat to let students talk about research they’re doing. Or to talk about whether a certain paragraph should be in your business proposal. Or to pick the perfect place for dinner from a list on your PBwiki. It’s available now on your wiki, free.
A PBwiki Press Conference — April 12th
We’re holding a press conference (using the voice chat, of course) tomorrow, April 12th, at http://press.pbworks.com.

From the entire team at PBwiki and YackPack, enjoy voice chat on your wiki!
